Great laptop.
Awesome machine for the price. I owned an alienware in the past, and wanted to get back into pc gaming. The price was at a tasteful point to me, so I pulled the trigger. Runs Apex at 60fps and ARk at 40-60(on ultra). over all nice machine with good build quality. It does lean on the hotter side when heavily gaming, but its a laptop and I expected that.

    Geez just waiting for it to melt down!
    This compared too my nitro 5 1050ti is a complete cheap piece of junk... I dont know how acer goes to a 144 htz display a gtx 2060 and fails in quality to a predecessor nitro 5 with a 1050ti.. This unit is flimsy built cheap gpu burns up the speakers are a tinny low sounding disgrace.... Might play games okay like but the 1050 ti with a 8th gen processor runs games just as good ! Don't waste your money on this one... I bought a two year warranty and I can guarantee this laptop wont last that long.. Its lasted as long as it has because it's a backup and I hardly use it... RUNS WAY TO HOT!!!

    Great Laptop
    Cpu does get a bit hot even with fans on max, but still a great overall laptop. Very smooth 144hz display, great looking laptop shell, and it even comes with a nice laptop case. Runs games very well for being a laptop, specs are great for the price, and it also has plenty of storage, with the capability for another m.2 ssd. It also has pretty nice speakers, and a decent webcam with a built in mic. I bought mine for around $800 on sale, and do not regret my purchase whatsoever.

    much better than expected
    Much better than expected. The pictures of this laptop make it look a little cheap. But when you receive the laptop it's absolutely gorgeous. Everything works perfectly and the RTX is the only way to go. I Video Edit for a living. The first thing I did was make a video. now I paid $799 during Black Friday. I don't think it's possible to get the specs on this deal. I looked everywhere there's nothing like this with an RTX 2060. And 1tb.

    I like it, but it has its quirks
    Nowhere else will you find a laptop with these specs at this price. It can handle almost the highest settings for the newest games. There are two things that bug me though: 1. It gets HOT. If you don't mess with any settings, the CPU will easily reach 200 degrees F and stay there. I found that putting it in "power saver" mode and manually setting the fans at full blast will keep it below 180 F. That doesn't seem to affect gameplay much. 2. I bought this laptop mainly to play at my desk, but I like the option of going mobile with it. However, it has only 1 native external video output. Outputting video through USB has a bit of lag. I have a second monitor hooked through an old USB video card which I use for monitoring discord. That works well enough for me since I'm not using the second monitor for gaming purposes.

    Great Graphics, fast running, great brand
    Upgraded Acers. Great brand always good computers. Had my last one for 7 years and just now needed to upgrade to this one. This one runs so fast and the graphics are the best I've seen in a computer. Highly recommend.

    It runs HOT!!!
    As a very knowledgeable PC enthusiast all I can say is this, the cooling in this laptop is great on the GPU. The biggest downside is the CPU cooling and I say that because after playing one match on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the CPU temps spiked to 90 degrees Celsius. The GPU hovered around 70-80 C. Unless you plan on changing the thermal paste on this and voiding your warranty, it's probably best to stick to separate work and gaming computers. Other than temps, the 144hz panel is great and angles are nice but the keyboard is a bit cheesy since it's all red and there is no option to change the color. The SSD is fast for booting and took no longer than 8 seconds to get to the windows desktop. The i5 is lacking in performance and is demolished by it's Ryzen counterpart. I feel this is because it is thermal throttling so if you have better performance from this, then I hope this laptop lasts you a good long time.

    Good gaming laptop with battery limitation
    Laptop is plenty fast for your gaming needs! The only thing I do not like about this laptop is that I only get about 1 hour battery life while gaming. Seems that this laptop is only meant for gaming while plugged into the wall and even then your battery depletes slowly.

    Great performance but super cheap build
    Bought this laptop to use for gaming obviously. However the screen is dull and the colors are all washed out. Its made of all plastic and feels cheap and stiff. It gets so hot that it burns your fingertips if you play any modern game. However it does run the games at the highest settings with little problem. The nitrosense program helps with the cooling and is quite neat but the fans are crazy loud.
